.com live. and so, there was all this kerfuffle yesterday about the exchange between dianne feinstein and senator ted cruz of texas. he challenged her with whether you could similarly limit the first amendment rights and the fourth amendment that protects from search and seizure and so on in the way he thinks she's trying to do to second amendment rights. this was all over the broadcast yesterday. i ask you this, chris, as much attention as that got and we're going to show the viewers point of that in a minute. what was the point? because as of right now, are there even arguably the votes for the thing in the senate, the full senate or the house? >> megyn, don't start raising the bar for-- or lowering the bar for pointlessness in washington d.c., we'd all be out of a job in no time. come on, no, i kid a little. >> megyn: can that be done? can one lower that bar? >> well, congress is trying. we try, this city tries all the time, but the truth is that the exchange is important in this pay, that it encapsulates pretty well, what these two points of view are that dianne feinstein did not
